UPPER SCHOOL

The Upper School Fall Sampler Concert scheduled for this Sunday, October 24, 2021, has been canceled. Our students have been working so hard on their pieces and we still want to showcase their work. Therefore, we will make available recordings of portions of the band and choir performances to be included in the Weekly Update as well as share them on social media.
